Default Where I get on the bus and where I go...

Once a zen master told his pupil that the way to satori is simple; you eat when you're hungry and sleep when you're sleepy... Ah, so is my daily routine often:

where I get on the municipality bus on my way back home...




and where I go...





................................

#3) Just added! That's the very bus stop at which I practice Zen and the art of waiting for the bus # 209 : ) (the wife takes the car always)





#4) And from a bit distance; life in general...to the right, outside of the frame, as you pass by the Metro sign (M) are benches where you can have a bagel with cheese you buy from the stalls, like me, when you have to leave home in a hurry!

Two beautiful photographs, both in composition and "exposition". You live in a post card area of your country, for sure. Were these HDR?

As you'd expect me to say, bahadir, I like the clouds!

Thank you so much for your insightful remarks, Robert! Izmir has been fighting well to preserve its identity againist some vandal mentality. Thus, we'll be filling the streets again this Sunday ; ) Btw, yes, they're HDR.

Since the more one desires 'Satori' the further it is away from him/her, I'm afraid you're quite Zen, my friend, which is rather like a path to enjoy without being stamped on the back...As for your practices; good for you as being the master of time! And as for me, almost the same, except I have to keep an eye on the watch meanwhile to be on time for the lessons ; )

It's lovely to hear from you Alan! Yes, your appreciation for clouds often comes to my mind, which makes me wish to include them even in portraits : )

Terrific scenes. What comes to mind is that they look like they've been overlaid with a heavy pencil

But why no picture frame or border?

Thanks for the appreciation! I should add some frames into the actions, which I lost upgrading from CS3 to CS4.
